Quotes of the day from previous years:

2004
When there is no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth. ~ Dawn of the Dead (1978) by George Romero
  • proposed by IP 172.170.76.22
2005
The most dangerous phrase in the language is, "We've always done it this way." ~ Grace Hopper
  • selected by Kalki
2006
Freedom only for the members of the government, only for the members of the Party — though they are quite numerous — is no freedom at all. Freedom is always the freedom of dissenters. ~ Rosa Luxemburg (born 5 March 1870 or 1871)
  • proposed by Kalki
2007
I've always wanted to make the world a more rational place. I'm still working on it. ~ Penn Jillette (born 5 March 1955)
  • proposed by Kalki
2008
Technology adds nothing to art. Two thousand years ago, I could tell you a story, and at any point during the story I could stop, and ask, Now do you want the hero to be kidnapped, or not? But that would, of course, have ruined the story. Part of the experience of being entertained is sitting back and plugging into someone else's vision. ~ Penn Jillette
  • proposed by Kalki
2009
The object of government in peace and in war is not the glory of rulers or of races, but the happiness of the common man. ~ William Beveridge

  • initially proposed on the posting page as "A saying quoted often from memory by my sister (source is unknown)" by Tara 11:40, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 21:24, 4 March 2006 (UTC) (good statement, but I greatly prefer using traceable quotes to anonymous ones for QOTD, as well as ones with some relevance to the date)
  • 1 Zarbon 04:04, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 UDScott 15:34, 4 March 2009 (UTC) - I like the quote, but since it is unsourced, I do not feel it is appropriate for QOTD.

War unleashes — at the same time as the reactionary forces of the capitalist world — the generating forces of social revolution which ferment in its depths. ~ Rosa Luxemburg

I don't travel in circles where people say, "I have faith, I believe this in my heart and nothing you can say or do can shake my faith." That's just a long-winded religious way to say, "shut up," or another two words that the FCC likes less. ~ Penn Jillette

All the world's most powerful governments pay millions of dollars for seas and deserts, 100's of acres of land bought for ownership, and improvement done for later benefit. Because it's land that is forever stable, money is just paper. ~ Vazgen Sargsyan (born March 5)

Nothing shocks me more than ferocity against the vanquished, especially when victors take poses. Between the dogs and the wolf, I shall always side with the wolf, especially when he is wounded. ~ Jacques Vergès
